you. the weekend is here and we're starting off on a little bit of a wet note for some communities this morning. here's max defender 8 scanning the skies. we are tracking a little bit of rain this morning. so taking a look at highlands and polk county. we've had the showers that have been working in from the east coast of florida throughout the night. so don't be surprised even if you're not seeing rain this morning, you may have had a little bit of rain overnight. so you'll see your car is a little bit wet this in park, not seeing much but there's a shower just to your east that is headed your way. also a few more showers there for highland park and lake wales. then a couple of showers starting to roll through hillsborough county, just light stuff near plant city heading towards seffner, brandon, riverview. actually just moved across i-75 heading out into bay. a few drops to deal with. overall a fairly quiet start.
numbers likely stay above average and again slightly higher rain chances for the weekend as compared to the last week. still nicole in the north atlantic but overall quieting down for us. 73 at 8:00. we'll see temperatures not feeling like fall today. the warm-up, 82 degrees with scattered clouds and stray shower. rain chance 20%. for the afternoon and maybe a bit breezy as well. 72 this morning for sebring, lakeland and clearwater. in inverness. overall fairly mild start. we got some showers but they are not expected to be that strong for today. the reason is this -- we got dry air aloft here, some sinking air aloft. that is going to prevent that vertical development of showers that we need here. so again just a few spotty showers. as we go through the afternoon here, mainly in the afternoon and evening. tomorrow, atmosphere starts to moisten up. i do think we'll see a few more
thunderstorms, by sunday afternoon. then more dry air starts to roll back in, in the upper levels by monday. that will help to bring the rain chances right back down. so there's the weekend, in greater detail, 87, again the showers will be quick moving, not going to have too much energy to them. high temperatures above average but then tomorrow, where we should be for this time of year. 85 degrees. that rain chance coming up to 30%. so they could play a role in the afternoon and mainly. just have the umbrella in case. 10% shot of rain for monday and tuesday. perhaps more moisture by the end of next week. not too bad, just keep an eye to the sky. >> looks pretty nice, just not seasonal. >> we should be 85 but it's been very warm last couple of days. >> em ben affleck is playing a different kind of hero. a look at his latest role and
